boxer. senator, thanks so much for joining us. the gender gap has been a big issue, the women's vote has been a big issue among voters throughout this campaign. let's talk about the gender gap. the president has sort of narrow lead among women. it's no longer the double-digit lead that he had. but is this enough for him to carry him, despite the disadvantage that he has with male, men voters, especially white men? >> first of all there are more women voters than men voters. so when he's leading women by eight and romney is leading men by seven, i think the math works in our favor. but here's the other interesting statistic -- among the undecides, the few that are left, most of them are women. and i think as women look at this, whether they're number one issue is jobs, and they look at the latest jobs reports, do you know that you probably do, that barack obama, under his leadership, we've created more private-sector jobs in the last couple of months than george w. bush in eight years? and this president was handed the worst recession since the great depression. and we're coming out of it
us from there. mark, you're in a home there on staten island. tell me what you're seeing on the ground and how people are coping and whether fema is finally arriving on the scene today. >> yeah. fema is here. fema is here, federal agents set up in a command center. this is ocean breeze, sort of a forgotten community in between. south beach and midland beach the waters receded, debris cleared. i want to give you a tour. this was a home of ten, eight children, mom and dad called this home. this was the living room. you can see the signs of family. a doll, winnie the pooh, walk you down the hall where this used to be a closet, there was a bathroom here. now covered in sea water and mud and muck and the stench here is incredible. jackie, want to talk to you real quick. your nieces and nephews, 9 through 21 live here. folks here need help. are you getting the help? >> nobody is here. nobody. they just showed up after you showed up. that's it. it's terrible. look. nothing. >> this used to be the backyard. there used to be a patio there. now it's someone else's trampoline, const
smart. >> the guy is very savvy. >> he waited until now. >> correct. i had somebody use the following phrase with me, he may be the ultimate lagging indicator in that mayor bloomberg is a cautious guy politically. he's always looking out for mayor bloomberg, and there's nothing wrong with that. politicians always look out for their own best interests first. that's the nature of being an ambitious pol, but would he have done this if he thought obama was going to lose? >> that's an indicator of the public. >> that's my question. i don't know. >> by the way, the late brilliant jack jarvis -- somebody once say when that ball comes down on new year's eve, or just at midnight when it starts to come down, that's how he would come down on an issue. you know the decision had been made. here i give him more credit, mike bloomberg, who i happen to like personally. i think he does follow very constructive, middle of the road instincts on this thing. my thought. >> he's trying to put himself and he's been trying to position himself for a long time as kind of a centrist arbiter. he set up a super p
tell us? >> what we know so far and what we've been able to confirm from multiple sources is clearly that the cia director resigned. he made that announcement and cited an extramarital affair. denot, he did not, however, say who may have been involved. what we also know from law enforcement officials is that the fbi is currently investigating paula who has written a become on general petraeus, a favorable account of general petraeus. she talks about having extensive access to the general. they've gone running together, according to her accounts, she's appeared many times on television programs, including on msnbc. the fbi investigation is focusing on whether she had improper access to general petraeus' e-mails and may potentially have looked at classified information. we have also been told that it doesn't appear that any charges are going to be filed. this doesn't appear that it's going to be some sort of imprisonment and that general petraeus himself is not being investigated in this. >> but we don't know if there's an investigation between the resignation and -- >> at this point w
. >> i was going to answer that. >> joy reid. thank you both for joining us. everybody knows the stakes are enormous. that's signals aren't just where they're at, they're being radiated on the nightly news, this program, everywhere. aren't you impressed by romney who is often very stiff and overdressed, never ut buttons his tie, more dressed up an ever. obama wearing the grandfather cashed began or whatever he's got on. i love that kind of swter, my wife hates it. >> fdr. >> romney looks like he's going to a board meeting and he doesn't exactly sound like a guy giving a rousing rally. he sounds like somebody -- >> what's with the president of the united states with that costume on today. >> he's doing cool obama. he needs the young vote. >> is that what it is zm sn. >> i think right now i'd rather be barack obama than mitt romney. if you look at the polls, his campaign feels pretty good about where they are, and so he's sort of ndiaying this. >> i get up this morning and started clocking it around 8:00. i started clocking minute to minute to minute to get the jobless number. then i go,
cialis for daily use and a 30-tablet free trial. >>> good morning. i'm chris jansing. we are live from tower city center here in cleveland. i've been covering the obama and romney campaigns here in ohio since friday following both since they barn stormed this state and the country in a last frantic final push. can you believe it's the final full day? well, president obama visiting three states that will make up his firewall today. wisconsin, here in ohio and iowa. mitt romney just wrapped up a florida. now, he's headed to virginia and then back here to ohio. he'll end his day in new hampshire. polls show this race is extremely close. a dead heat nationally. very close in the battleground states. perhaps a very slight advantage for president obama. he seems to have a little bit of momentum going into the final day. well, democrats point to long lines for early voting as a sign of enthusiasm, but republicans say their crowds are bigger and the obama magic from 2008 has warn off. the president's closing argument, a fair shot for everyone and a chance to do even better. >> we've made real
. >> to get us on track to a balanced budget, that's going to take some real work. to get that done it going to require something in washington that's spoken about but not done and it's something i have to do. i've got to be able to reach across the aisle and get good republicans and democrats to work together. >> meanwhile, we've got new nbc news marist polls and they all show a tightening race. the president leads in the three that released today. in iowa, president obama maintains a lead. six-point lead over mitt romney. that is down from eight two weeks ago. in wisconsin, romney has cut the president's lead in half from the last time we were there. he trails by three points, well within the margin of error. and then there's new hampshire which is best to be called a dead heat. the president is 49%, romney 47%. by the way, new hampshire is mitt romney's final stop before election day. director of the marist poll joins me now. lee, let's start with iowa, as you might be already aware of. the romney campaign disputes the size of the lead that we have for the president there. they believe th

[ coughs ] [ buzz! ] [ screams ] ...and you could find yourself... honey? ...on the couch. nyquil. 50% longer cough relief. >>> the results are in and we now have the winners and the losers of the polling business. according to a study by fordham university, the poll i hate to mention, because it sounds so weird. the ppp poll, was actually number one tied with daily kos as the most accurate polls. you see nbc was down at number 6 was top for the networks. cbs was tied at number 6 with nbc, abc down at 12, pew was at 13, cnn, the next was 15. a bunch of them tied at 15. and then way down the but the om you have rasmussen tied with gallup and npr and the big loser the ap poll. remember all of that four years from now. you're going to want to know which ones got it right. which ones got it wrong. ppp poll and of course, nate silver. no, no, no, stop! humans -- one day, we're coming up with the theory of relativity,
it was a 1,000-mile wide storm. at least 109 people are said to have died in the u.s. and another 60 were killed in the caribbean. as of this morning 2.9 million customers remain without power across 15 states and the washington, d.c. the economic losses are nearing $50 billion. flooding of new york subways and commuter train tunnels and loss of business accounts for much of that estimate. with an election just a few days away the political media industrial complex briefly ground to a halt and then somewhat awkwardly cranked back to life with mitt romney turning a campaign event into a relief rally. president obama heading back out on the trail and pundits growing more and more comfortable speculating consequences of the disaster. local and area officials had to make practical decisions and give emergency briefings and address the anxiety of their constituents. governor chris christie seemed to suggest he wasn't taking the election into consideration. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea. nor am i the
companies like bain capital. they include some of the fortune companies. they use the language of small business to provide tax breaks for wealthy entities. but if you really care about the economy, which we all should, then we e need to look at things like extending the payroll tax cut for the year or its e equivalent. the nonpartisan group has said that's much more important to helping the fragile economy than providing a few folks at the top with another tax break. so we should be looking at those kind of measures that put a little more money in the pockets of 160 million americans who will go out and spend it rather than providing another tax break to those at the top. >> one of the toughest questions, entitlements. are you willing to make cuts in medicare and medicaid and social security? >> well, the issue is how we make those cuts and savings. so we should find savings in medicare. we should do it by building on the economies we have in the affordable care account, which says we should move away from the fee for service system that drives up cost and move toward a system where we

"the rachel maddow" show begins right now. good evening, rachel. >> good evening, ed. my local bar here in new york city is a steelers bar. >> way to go, rachel. >> at the risk of getting either way too many free drinks or none ever the rest of my life, it was an exciting end of the game. >> thank you. >> well done, man. thanks a lot. >> you bet. >> thanks to you at home for staying with us for this special sunday, sunday, sunday! two days to go, monster truck election derby special edition of "the rachel maddow show." we've been waiting to do that all year long. all right. you ready? today we saw the largest crowds we have seen at political rallies this entire election season. mitt romney spoke to an estimated 4,500 people in des moines, iowa, this morning. then governor romney flew to cleveland, ohio, where another 6,000-plus people showed up to hear him speak. then he went to pennsylvania. after that he bolted for virginia. this is a big, big day for the romney campaign. just as this is a big,
